Meat Pies

Is it possible to get a terrific meat pie in the FQ, the CBD, Warehouse District? Heard great things about "French Quarter Deli and Grocery", are they anything like the real deal in Natchitoches?

  1. To me, for the most part a meat pie is a meat pie is a meat pie. I've never had a meat pie IN Natchitoches, but the pies at the deli you mention are basically the same as Mrs. Wheat's, and they may in fact BE Mrs. Wheat's. They might tell you if you ask. The other place I can think of off the top of my head that regularly sells meat pies is Cooter Browns.

      Cooter's does a meat pie po boy, the Coonass Special....I die.

      you also want to get the meat patties at Boswell's on Tulane Ave.

        Ah, but there are definitely superior meat pies IN Natchitoches. Not all meat pies are industrial, thank goodness....

      2. NOLA Grocery in the Warehouse Disctrict has meat pies and it's not bad. You can also get them at any Brother's Gas Station 24 hours a day.

          The meat in the meat pies at Brother's is really good. I just wish the bread was crispier instead of bready.

        2. Had a great meat pie yesterday at Byblos Market on Veterans Hwy. Most probably serve them at the restaurant on Magazine Street.
